I started out Being a caregiver for my mother. It started out as I never wanted to put the care of my mother in anther person hands so as she got better I took on another client she was eighty and bed ridden she had ten kids lived alone and the first time I went there she been in bed two days have ate and thier was no food in the home,two diapers on and full of soil then this finally became real to me I call my supervisor made him aware assisted he bring her some food I cleaned her gave her new bedding. And I assure her she would be alright my supervisor brought her food. From that day on I treat every patient as if it was my mother or father because most client have not a soul to care about them so I think if I can be good and make my clients happy and comfortable it would make a differents.
